Hey there! I am currently working on my masters in reading. I am working one on one with a student who is receiving RTI services. I have been working with this student for a number of weeks. As I watch him with the RTI instructor he is very outgoing, talkative, and enthusiastic about the learning taking place, but when he works with me he completely shuts down! He does not talk much and when he does he whispers short answers or phrases. My question is how can I help motivate this student to open up and engaged in the learning process. I feel that I have created a warm and open environment but I just cannot seem to connect with this particular child. I have never had this problem before. Please give me advice!!
